the Orange Bowl (8:30pm, 1/3)

Virginia Tech v Stanford (-3.5)

Great matchup here. The Cardinal were one of the toughest teams this season in most facets of the game, while the Hokies rebounded about as big as you can to reel off eleven straight wins en route to this game. Defense will be the key, but Stanford is just too strong up front.

The Call: Stanford by 7

The Result: Stanford 40-12
We knew Stanford was capable of dominating, but I don't think anyone really thought it'd happen the way it did in the second half there, against a VT defense no less. Let the Luck & Harbaugh hype officially begin.

I see a Stanford win and cover as well.

I thought it'd happen EXACTLY like that in the second half. I'm still shocked at the win the Ducks managed to pull off against the Cardinal, as both were potent and dominant enough to play for "all the Tostitos". Stanford should've gotten a bigger bowl, IMO.
